Kitsbow Haskell Short - Men's
It's no secret that Kitsbow has a handle on classic, understated style, and we're routinely impressed by its pieces that look like they belong on the street, but function exactly the way they're supposed to on the bike. As well-appointed as Kitsbow designs are, they hold up to the abuse that long days on singletrack deliver, coming out the other side looking just as good as before. The Haskell Men's Short might be one of the best examples of the brand's versatility; designed to be a short you throw on to go for a walk, hike, climb, or anything else that comes up, the Haskell can also hold its own in the saddle, transitioning easily from the sidewalk, to the bike path, to your favorite stretch of singletrack at sunset.
That versatility comes from the Haskell's blended nylon and spandex construction, which will move with you throughout your day while whisking moisture away from your skin as you sweat. Kitsbow also added a DWR coating to the fabric to prepare the Haskell for days of surprise showers and less-than-ideal weather, making sure water beads up and rolls away before it can soak you mid-ride. Six well-placed pockets throughout the body of the short give you freedom to take an assortment of bonk-preventing nutrition and other essentials with you as you ride, while a well-placed key ring provides extra reassurance that your keys will stay put on especially rowdy rides.

- Q & A
High quality, high price...worth it
I have long been on the search for "the mountain biking short". For me, the Kitsbow. Haskell fits the bill. The material and construction ooze thoughtfulness of design and superior materials. The shorts are surprising thick and heavy in a substantial way while maintaining stretch. They hit right at my knee (6'0") while standing and slide up above the knee while riding. The fit is fantastic and very modern. The legs taper ever so slightly without looking like skinny shorts for a clean trim look. I wish my casual cotton shorts fit this well. I operate under the buy fewer more quality items and use them until they are completely worn out. These are the only mtb shorts inown
Well worth the extra pennies!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The Haskell shorts are well worth the pennies. The fit is great and styling is perfect. Not your typical MTB style short. The legs are trim and hang just over your knee standing. While riding they rise just above your knee as to not interfere with pads. The material is stretchy and really comfortable riding. Compared to other shorts the fabric has a heavy durable feel but is quite breathable. The quality definitely justifies the price. I’ve worn these shorts biking but recently find myself wearing them every chance I get. Playing golf, taking the pup out for a walk, you name it. I pick these shorts from the stack first.
The fit is on point. I wear 32 jeans/34 dress pants and ordered a 34 in the Haskell short. The waist fits perfect with and without chamois. I also wear 34 in Troy Lee’s Skyline Race short and a 34 in Giro’s Truant short.
Do these shorts have a chamois?
What is the inseam length on these shorts?
